This course allows students to develop and practice essential skills required in conciliation. Conciliation is frequently used in legal and business disputes to quickly and affordably solve disputes with the input of a conciliator with knowledge of the subject matter of the dispute. Students will explore the skills required for effective and successful conciliation, including communication, negotiation, compromise and dispute resolution skills. The advisory and evaluative nature of conciliations will be explored, by discussing the role of the conciliator and their potential input into the content and outcome of the conciliation. The practice and procedure of conciliation will be explored to ensure that students have a theoretical knowledge of how conciliations are conducted and the strategies employed by the parties involved in conciliations. Students will participate in scenarios which assess their conciliation skills and demonstrate how to address and solve conflict through conciliation, and also allow the students to critically analyse scenarios to determine how resolution through conciliation could be achieved.
